Cartoon Summary:

Miracle Telephone Company is having its troubles. Telephone poles are being wrecked throughout the city faster than they can be repaired. The wrecker, of course, is none other than Woody Woodpecker. The president of the company, in order to trap the guilty culprit, has installed a magnetically operated map in his office so that when poles are tampered with, the location lights up on the map.

An alarm goes off and a light on the map flashes on, indicating where Woody's at work. The president calls O'Hollihan and tells him to go out and "get that woodpecker" or look for another job! O'Hollihan fails to catch the woodpecker, so the president undertakes the job himself. Disguising himself as a woodpecker, he sallies forth from his office. The office clerk, elevator attendant, doorman and chauffeur all say, "Good morning, Mr. President." The president thinks he'll still fool that woodpecker.

Woody foils the president's attempts to catch him, but the president finally turns the tables and has Woody just where he wants him when O'Hollihan returns, bent on capturing the woodpecker, and on restoring himself in the president's good graces. O'Hollihan, completely fooled by the disguise, KOs the president instead of Woody.

Entering the president's office with his prize catch, O'Hollihan sees Woody sitting at the president's desk. Turning to the woodpecker that he has clutched in his hand, O'Hollihan asks, "Who are you?" "A woodpecker, you dope," replies the president, who starts pecking at him while he chases him for the office.
